Androgen use

Prof. Rob McLachlan

Androgen deficiency (AD) affects 1 in 200 men under 60 years. Symptoms and signs may be subtle or non-specific and many cases remain undiagnosed. When identified by clinical features and confirmatory endocrine testing, AD requires treatment irrespective of age. Primary testicular disease (low testosterone [T], high LH) may present with infertility so that co-existent AD must be considered in that setting. Klinefelter’s syndrome (47XXY) is the commonest cause of AD yet 70% of cases remain undiagnosed.
